California Override Trucking Accident Attorneys

An override accident is one in which an eighteen wheeler “rides over” a car, motorcycle, or pedestrian. Override accidents in California typically occur when the front of a large truck crashes over the lower structures of a car. Therefore, there is a need for energy-absorbing and “lower to the road” frontal bumpers and overall design considerations to try to reduce the often lethal consequences of a massive truck colliding head on with a smaller passenger vehicle.

Truck override accidents are one of the most devastating of truck vs. car collisions. An 80,000 pound semi truck, running over a 3000 pound car results in disaster. The driver and passengers in a car involved in an override truck accident are lucky to survive such a serious car-truck collision. If not killed, the car’s occupants will likely suffer temporary or permanent disabling injuries.
